4th Scientific Workshop: 
The Haematological Tumour Microenvironment and its Therapeutic Targeting

February 5-7, 2023
The Francis Crick Institute – London, United Kingdom

Chairs: Dominique Bonnet, Marina Konopleva, Daniela S. Krause, Simon Méndez-Ferrer


Programme Summary:

This workshop offers highest-level science on the nature of the normal and malignant haemopoietic stem cell niche. It also aims to present strategies to target haematological cancers in their tumour microenvironment, thereby combining basic research efforts with possible clinical applications. It is designed to promote scientific interaction between participants from all over the world, involving junior and senior biologists and clinicians working in both the academic and industrial settings.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit points will be awarded to physicians for the time they will spend at the meeting improving their knowledge and skills. ESH is a provider of the European Hematology CME system.

Posters and Brief Oral Communications:

Registered participants are invited to submit their Biology and Clinical abstracts. Selected abstracts will be presented as brief oral communications or posters.

  • Technologists
  • Representatives from industry

Learning objectives:

  • Describe the impact of the niche on haematopoietic development and ageing of haematopoietic stem cells
  • Describe factors such as metabolism and inflammation/infection influencing the niche and, consequently, haematopoietic stem cells
  • The niche in myeloid and lymphoid malignancies
  • The impact of immune cells and immunotherapy on the niche
  • Concepts and strategies to target haematological malignancies in the niche


  • Normal Haemopoietic stem cell niche
  • The bone marrow niche under stress and regeneration
  • The bone marrow niche in myeloid malignancies
  • Metabolism
  • The bone marrow niche in lymphoid malignancies
  • Immune cells and immunotherapy
  • Preclinical and clinical studies to target bone marrow niche


The programme will include:

  • Plenary Sessions
  • Keynote Lectures
  • Simultaneous Meet the Expert Sessions
  • Panel Discussions
  • Poster Presentations
  • Short Oral Communications
